Language and Religion

Abstract

Throughout much of the history of western philosophy, philosophers have assumed that speech is an outward sign of an inner, mental experience.

This realization opens up the possibility of a resolution of the apparent conflict between science and religion, through a transformation of the language that we use in relating to reality.
